Language Students Immersed in Day of French

Sixth Form students in the Boys’ and Girls’ Divisions studying French to A Level benefitted from the annual joint French Day, held in the Arts Centre. Guest speaker Richard Peltier returned to Bolton School to immerse students in a day of presentations and discussion based around the A Level curriculum.

Years 12 and 13 spent the morning covering the topics of new family types, the dangers of cyber-society and the ‘seventh art’ – cinema in the French-speaking world.

In the afternoon, Year 13 continued their day of French with the subjects of poverty, prison and whether it is a good or bad solution, and teenagers, discussing their right to vote and political commitment.

The Sixth Form students tackled these challenging conversations and debates with skill. They were able to talk to each other and Richard in some depth about the issues involved, and the experience will no doubt have helped them gain fluency and confidence.
